How to Generate Searchable Content from Your Audio & Video

At FFTranscription, we understand that there are many reasons for businesses in all industries to produce audio and video content. Whether used internally or externally, significant effort is expended to create these resources. When such a valuable tool is used efficiently, it can work wonders for your business.

To take advantage of the benefits of audio and video content, one key element to consider is accessibility. To create more searchable content, here are some of the best practices:

Making Audio and Videos Searchable for the Public

With countless audio and video files out there, it is easy for business-related content to slip under the radar. If the desired post doesn’t show up at the top of a user’s search results, there’s a good chance that they aren’t going to see it. The solution to this potential setback is search engine optimization.

Optimizing audio and video content gives it the best chance of ranking highly for the audience’s searches. Providing written transcripts of the content can make it easier for search engines to understand what they’re about, allowing them to show this content to the right users. Making a text version of audio and video content available can help expose more people to the content and provide an alternative to those who are hearing impaired.

Improving How Searchable Audio and Videos are for Businesses

Creating audio and video files for internal company use, such as recordings of meetings, seminars, and training is a great method of allowing employees to access this information at a later date. Organization is key when it comes to these files, as numerous files can be challenging to keep track of and to know what information is where.

This is just one more reason to invest in transcripts. With a transcript that goes along with each audio and video file, searching for the desired information within these files becomes much easier. Making content accessible in this way can save a business time in the future, with greater organization and fewer searches for information that was made reachable through transcription.
